Orbs, Audreys, Shipping and Release Schedule..

It’s been too long since my last post, I have lots of ground to cover so let’s dive right in!

Since my last post we’ve released Gremlin Orbs, same concept as the pods but they are just the sphere portion of the pod. Folks seem to really like these so we decided to release various colors for the time being. Currently we’ve released White, Red, Glow in the Dark and a special 420 edition only available this weekend. Red and White are sold out but GID is still available. I’m planning on a larger Orb about the size of a pool ball in the future so keep an eye out for that. Maybe Pink for the the next original size Orb.

Next up is the triumphant return of Audrey 2. I sculpted this lil fella back in 2014 and I’m happy to be painting him again. I have about ten pieces I dug out of the vault I plan on doing a standard paint up like the pic above and some funkier ones like the one below. Who knows maybe there’s different color ones…that would be a neat addition if the they ever do a reboot.

SHIPPING SCHEDULE: Quick note on shipping. I do my best to ship items out as promptly as possible. I’m one dude with a wife, ten year old daughter and I hand make everything so typically I put together packages and ship twice a week, Tues and Friday, Depending on work volume and what’s going on with the fam really but usually twice a week.

Release Schedules: I have none.. I release pieces as I finish them. If you order something from the website and I release something the next day, feel free to shoot me a message and I can save you the extra shipping. Alternatively, I will just refund you the additional shipping when I see the additional order come in.

Well I think that’s it for this one, it’s late and I’m beat! I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend! As always, Thanks for the support!

Ruptured Pods, Spring Sale

Hey everyone! First Thank you to everyone who snagged a Pod from me. Those are really fun pieces and I’m stoked at the response they’ve had. Late last night I dropped some Ruptured Baby Gremlin Pods off in the shop and these come with a little price break. These little guys are just like the original pods but they appear to be popped. How fun!


Next on the agenda is the Spring Sale. It’s still going on and the discount applies to everything in the shop…even the pieces on sale. Use the coupon code “spring10″for 15% off your total purchase. I’m thinking of ending the Spring Sale this Sundays so if your interested in anything in the webshop this weekend is a good time to pull the trigger. I upped the percentage discount for the final weekend from 10% to 15%.

As always thanks for the support!

Custom Paint Ups, Paint Commissions and Colabs

If your reading this post then you probably have seen my custom paint work on instagram or somewhere else on the interweb on things. I love doing customs paint ups and you’ll definitely be seeing more of them in the future.

The custom Funko Pop Predator posted above came out great and felt good to be painting an old friend again. He comes in the original box with a nifty DuBoseArt Custom sticker on the front. As many of you know, I love predators and have custom painted sooo many (working on a gallery page for that) but now they are apparently “Vaulted” and is why I listed it at $75. On average these guys run $25 unpainted now so I have to factor that into the final price. Which brings me to commissions….

Commissions… I’ll paint just about everything. I’ve painted everything from cars to full body latex Predator suits. Prices range for different things so feel free to use the contact form to ask for a quote. Quotes are always free. I get asked about Funko Pops more than anything so I’ll explain how I do those to try and answer those questions.

For pops I typically charge $55-65 for a custom painted pop standard size pop. I call it the “I handle everything deal”. That price includes the pop (as long as the pop is easy to find and not vaulted or rare), the work and return US shipping. Workflow for this option is like this: client pays, I order the pop to customize (typically from ebay ), I paint the pop shortly after it arrives. Return ship after completion. Easy peasy!!

Second options is the Client Provides Piece option. In the case of Pops or a vinyl of that size, I typically charge $45-55 for the Paint Work and Return US Shipping. Workflow for this option is like this: Client pays for commission, Ships Pop or vinyl to me, I work on pop shortly after arrives. This option or route applies to other non funko pieces like Sofubi or larger vinyl kits or busts. The larger the piece the higher Paint Work price might be. Other things like level if detail or certain effects can effect price as well so in those cases don’t hesitate to ask. Just shoot me an email.

VINYL ARTISTS. I’m always interesting in collaborations. Want me to paint your figures? shoot me an email and we can work it out!

Thanks for reading, shoot me a message if your interested in a booking a commission. Creatures and Monsters are the best.

Baby Gremlin Pods

Here I am blogging again about yet another release. Today we’re covering the Baby Gremlin Pods and what’s most likely going to become a mini series of Monster Baby’s in utero or egg..sac.. whatever the hell they might come in….from?..idk.. First up is the Baby Gremlin Pod…

Baby Gremlin Pod

The idea first came about years ago when I was custom painting a couple of 1:1 vinyl kits I picked up off eBay. I though wouldn’t be need to make one look like it got wet and was about to pop off babies. For what ever reason (I think i moved on to painting gilman busts..)..Any ways, it never happened and the idea was shelve in a dusty corner until my recent foray into the Vault and stumbled on to the little guy.

This week I worked out the ins and outs of the idea and now have Baby Gremlin Pods available for a limited time(TBD..we’ll see how it goes..). The are $30 each plus shipping(LINK ABOVE). They each hand cast in solid resin each measure 1.75in tall. The Baby is double cast encapsulated in its pod and attached to a fleshy base making it look like it was snached right off a wet gremlins back.

As mentioned earlier I’m thinking this is going to be the start of a mini series. I’m working on a baby Predator Fetus to put in an Yajuta Artificial Womb in my evening sculpting time. Pretty sure the artificial womb is the way to go.. Could you imagine birthing that head…eesh!

That’s it for this one, As always..THANK YOU!! for your support, likes, comments and follows!! Couple PSAs below. -J

PSA: Release may seem randomly timed, come on odd days of the week and often by surprise. That’s because in addition to creating my own artwork and resin pieces, I cast and create pieces for other artist and companies as well. I list pieces when they are available. Making Easter P+P stuff and Pegs right now…peg dudes almost done. yay!

PSA 2: Unpainted Grey Critters sets Wave 1 and 2 are disappearing Sunday at Midnight. No worries! Painted Versions will still be available for a while longer but those too will expire eventually to make room for a new colorway. maybe bloody or gid.

Limited Edition Painted Critters, 5.25in Critter funding drive!

In an effort to get the fur ball rolling on the production of the 5.25in Crite, I’ve hand painted 2 different colorways of Critter Sets to generate funds for the 5.25in furball you’ve probably seen on my instagram. They are $30 each set(plus shipping), come carded and you will receive via email a 25% off coupon code good for anything in the duboseart.com shop or you can save it for the release of the painted and furred version of the Naked Critter. Totally up to you.

We have the Classic Variant for those who love the classics and the New Binge variant because whether you liked the new series or not, that red one was pretty awesome.

Thank you for the likes, follows and everything. With your support we can make awesome things! I’m looking forward to painting and furring this fella!
